|Spot the tourist on the minaret- he's a 28mm figure on a 20mm square base.|
It's built mainly from heavy duty card, balsa wood and bits and pieces.
The base is a piece of plywood about 12" x 15" and the height to the top of the minaret is about 18".
It was made for no reason that I recall but was used a few times in some Indian Mutiny games.
|Side view (bit obvious)|
|Obligatory boring rear view|
|Arches, made from card, dowel and wall filler|
|Minaret walkway; cocktail sticks and beads|
|Dome; cocktail stick embedded into a home-cast clay dome and more beads|
|Doorway. Note damage (damn balsa), several bits of similar dmage can be seen|
|Quite a big building!|
The main walls were all drawn out in this card in one continuous piece and 'wrapped' around the polystyrene block. Stairs were bits scrap with hardboard bases,
The whole model was covered in filler and painted
|The base (once used as a coffee table maybe)|
|The other "wrap-around" building|
|"Interesting" side view (the other twp are blank)|
It took quite a while to dust them down, but it's still evident on some of the photos.
And that is it for another week, one in which I looked at basing some figures up, but didn't, perhaps I'll look at basing again this week!
Thanks for taking the time to visit and have found something to interest you in my nostalgic visit to old stuff!
